Pulis, This Season and The Playoff Semi Final
 
 
Although there is a few things thats frustrated me with Pulis this season. George Friend over Fabio, Tavernier sent out on loan. I thought he did a decent job with us this season getting us to the playoffs. I really do think most our fans and most the media believe this crop of players we have are better than they actual are. They are only capable of playing at the same tempo wether its chasing a lead or holding on to one. Although I think he should of put Bamford on along side Assombalonga I do think his timing to make the change was spot on.
we needed to keep it tight at the back probably more so than villa today if wed of conceded from playing attacking football and leaving ourselves open at the back wed of been out of the tie completely we were in the tie till the whistle blew regardless of how poor we were over the two legs. Villa were just a better more organised team than us and just as cautious as us.

Good post. I think Pulis can do for us next season similar to Bruce for Villa this. Hopefully it will be enough to go up.

We ended up with 9 points less than Karankas team got in his 1st full season and 3 transfer windows.

Over the two semis the performance stats were almost the same for both teams, so if we played badly the same could be said of Villa who finished the league 7 points ahead of us. Of course Villa got the key goal.

Even the league games were the same scores. I got the impression the play off games were a bit closer.

'Over the two semis the performance stats were almost the same for both teams, so if we played badly the same could be said of Villa who finished the league 7 points ahead of us. Of course Villa got the key goal.'

Not in respect of shots on target over the two games - Villa 9 Boro 2.

Just watched the Sky summary with Merson's and Andrews' comments. Pretty scathing - only one idea - get it to Traore - wasn't working - needed to try something else but didn't.

Pulis mentioned 'opportunities'. They couldn't remember many nor can I.

Can't have been many successive games which resulted in 2 shots on target even under the much derided Karanka era.

Andrews said Britt should have been left on with Bamford. I was astonished he wasn't and shocked when Gestede came on instead a few minutes later.

Leaving the game I texted a friend 'outthought by a better manager'.

I think the game may be leaving Pulis behind and I am unconvinced that 'his way' of playing is guaranteed as some think to get us up.

Rubbish. There's a lot more to be said. What can be said is that we start in exactly the same position that we started this season.

Some people are easily pleased, in fact far more easily pleased by the current manager than they were by the previous one.
